Stand Up for Your Island

Stand Up for Your Island

 

‘Stand Up for your Island’ was our first ever event, held on 22nd January at Les Cotils.

The room was packed with women who had come to find out more about a variety of roles in public office.  Each table was hosted by someone already in public office or someone who recruits others to public office roles.

Guernsey Press reporter, Juliet Pouteaux, came along and her report is here.

Euan Mahy from BBC Radio Guernsey interviewed our two special guests from Jersey, Deputies Louise Doublet and Carina Alves.  Go to 1:41:10 here to listen.

ITV Channel TV ran a two minute piece on their Saturday evening news programme, including interviews with members of the Women in Public Life committee and Karen Hazzan, an Independent Custody Visitor.

Our thanks to Paul Chambers Photography for the brilliant photos below.
